Tricked Into Utah For a Tummy Tuck

To make things clear, I was not tricked into getting a tummy tuck, I was tricked into going to Utah to accompany someone who wanted to get a tummy tuck. The title is to get your attention, worked didn’t it? Anyway it was about two years ago, during the 2014 “Color Run”, and event that started in Utah back 2011. My friend, Jill, invited me to go to Utah for the whole event, promising the whole trip to be fun, with all the running, colors, and a concert that may include pop bands that I might like. Little did I know that the generous invitation was a trap, designed to make me think that fun was the only reason for us to go there.

Jill has always been the type to omit things that might hinder with her plans, but she isn’t a bad person, she’s usually quite caring and giving, though when she needs something she does everything to get it, that time she needed a companion that might also assist her if she needs recovery. I should have seen it coming when she was not drinking during the night, which we usually do before a concert. The next day she told me that she wanted to stop by the hospital, it was then that she told me everything, I wasn’t angry or anything, it just sucked being in a situation where if you refuse you are leaving a friend who is about to go through surgery, albeit an elective surgery, and make me look like a completely heartless person.

It wasn’t all bad though, that time I had nothing to do, I had no job or anything that required me to go home immediately, and she paid for a wonderful trip that I would never forget. With all honestly she could have asked and I would have probably said yes, no need for all the cloak and dagger, but then again it did make it a little more fun, and it became a story fun enough to talk about with people, so I guess her way just made it more interesting.

The reason that Jill chose Utah seems to be because she knew a lot of people there, including the doctor that did the surgery. She told me that they were a bit nicer there, not just the medical professionals but also the people. Which is actually quite true, I realized that there wasn’t much cursing going around and people were abiding to rules more than usual. Are the people as nice as the people in Minnesota? Not sure, I haven’t been, but if the stories of “Minnesota nice” are true then maybe, just maybe they are.

After her procedure and she had enough time to recover to go around, we went around and got to meet a lot good people and friends, who took us to nice places with really good music, mostly pop music as we told them that Jill and I preferred it.
